The course offers a perfect training for students who are considering PhD research, and excellent preparation for work in the heritage industries.

Your teaching is informed by the work of the Centre for the Study of the Viking Age (CSVA) and the Institute for Name-Studies (INS), dynamic research centres which host reading groups and organise regular lecture and seminar series. You can also choose to work with, and develop teaching materials for, local primary schools as part of our ‘Vikings for Schools’ activities, and to collaborate with our partners at the University Museum.
